A baby was caught by a member of the public after being dropped from a west London tower block as it was engulfed with flames, a witness says.
Samira Lamrani said she saw a woman try to save a baby by dropping it from a window “on the ninth or 10th floor” from Grenfell Tower in North Kensington.
She told the Press Association: “People were starting to appear at the windows, frantically banging and screaming.
“The windows were slightly ajar, a woman was gesturing that she was about to throw her baby and if somebody could catch her baby.
“Somebody did, a gentleman ran forward and managed to grab the baby.”
Lamrani added: “I could see people from all angles, banging and screaming for help.
“Us members of the public were reassuring them, telling them we’ve done what we can and that we’ve phoned 999, but obviously the look on their face was death.
